DULUTH - Duluth's Veterans' Memorial Hall is honoring a famous World War II veteran through a new exhibit.
Major Henry A. Courtney, Jr. is one of only two Duluthians from the war to receive the Medal of Honor.
The exhibit showcases his life from his days at Duluth Central High School through his final days in the marines.
"A lot of the stuff he did, a lot of the stuff he's known for was stuff he didn't have to do. It's stuff he wanted to do and that he felt it was his duty to do," said Patrick Fenske, with Veterans' Memorial Hall.
Exhibit organizers say Courtney is also remembered for his selfless and humble personality.
